So I don’t try to hide it, but I guess I’ve never told you lovely readers before SO HERE’S MY BIG SECRET: I fall into crippling, nonsensical, good-for-nothing bouts of depression more often than I’d like to admit.
A good illustration of me during these days/weeks/months of depression can be found on my all-time favorite blog hyperboleandahalf.blogspot.com. Though the hilarious and mega-talented Allie has left this blog and gone on to bigger and better (and better PAYING, I’m sure!) things, I just keep coming back to her blog posts for everything. So be sure to read “Adventures in Depression” for a better understanding of me, if you’re interested.
ANYWAY, when I become depressed I turn to a long list of activities that I’ve been working on for some time now–a list of ways to pull myself out of that crater full of spiders that is my ‘sad place’. One step on my Get-the-Happy-Back list is watching YouTube videos for hours at a time. This, combined with copious amounts of coffee containing more sugar that you’d probably use to bake an entire wedding cake, does indeed Get the Happy Back for a little bit. It’s a quick fix, but sometimes that’s what you need most.
I wanted to share two of my favorite videos with you guys…in case you fall into the spider pit of boohoos, too.
1. Dragon Baby
2. Iron Baby
Because who doesn’t love videos where babies do things they can’t really do in real life really?
I may do more posting on my GET THE HAPPY BACK list in the coming month, so let me know if this is something that you’d like to read.
